A brief history of Toblerone
Produced in Bern, Switzerland, the Toblerone has become one of the most established chocolate treats in the world today. This iconic swiss chocolate treat was invented in 1908 by Theodor Tobler alongside his cousin Emil Baumann. Made from some of the finest ingredients, Toblerone is exclusively manufactured in its original birthplace Bern, Switzerland. The Toblerone recipe includes quality cocoa beans, sugar, milk as well as honey and almonds.
The name Toblerone is a combination of the inventors surname 'Tobler' and and the word 'Torrane' which is an Italian nougat specialty of almonds and honey. The triangular shape of the Toblerone bar was first rumored to represent the the Swiss Alps. However, the son of Theodor Tobler confirmed that a pyramid shape that dancers at the Folies Bergères created as the finale of a show that Theodor saw.
Milk Chocolate Toblerone
Personally, I've never actually had a Toblerone before so this was a nice Monday morning surprise. The first bar I reviewed was our Personalised Toblerone Christmas Edition (360g). It was everything I expected, and then some. The milk chocolate was smooth, delicate and scrumptious with the nougat adding that bit of texture to the bar. The bar was a fantastic treat and I thoroughly enjoyed every mouthful.
White Chocolate Toblerone
The next Toblerone I tasted was our Personalised Toblerone (White Chocolate). This chunky, white chocolate bar was again, very tasty. I did struggle to not finish off the bar! Similar to the milk chocolate Toblerone, it was very smooth and scrumptious with the white chocolate especially being a real pleaser.
Overall, I was a massive fan of both of these bars when trying them for the first time. I was a massive fan of the biscuity middle of the Toblerone.
